Attendance - Good attendance is vital!

Attendance - Good attendance is vital!

At Gurnos Nursery, we have high expectations for young children, There is a strong relationship between attendance and how well your child performs.

Since 2015 we have been implementing the Government initiative called ‘The Callio System.’ Each child is given a Callio colour every term which corresponds with their attendance. 
Below is the Callio table which explains how the system works and the implications of absent days on your child’s learning

  
Green: 100% - 97% Attendance
Implication on learning: Up to 6 days Lost
 
Amber: 100% - 97% Attendance
Implication on learning: 8-14 days, almost 3 weeks significant amount of education lost
 
Red: 92% and below
Implication on learning: Missing more than 3 weeks of education has a detrimental effect on achievement and life chances

Of course, we understand that children do fall ill from time to time. If your child is going to be absent please phone the school to inform them as soon as possible.
Thank you for striving to send your child to school every day.
